Lonely Rivers has a list.
Not a bucket list or a SarahLulu list, just a list of everything she wants or needs to do. A new list begins every January 1.
List 2010 lives in a yellow spiral notebook now held together by a wooden pinch clothespin. Lonely Rivers will write one day of the virtues of the two essentials in life: a wooden pinch clothespin and a fondue fork. LR believes that success in life, business,friendship, parenting,and marriage depend heavily on having these two critters on hand. That is for another day.
Lonely mistakenly thought the list existed for the giddy delight of crossing things off. To some degree it's true - the garbage would go out whether it was on the list or not. More pleasurable to take out the garbage AND cross it off the list. The list however annoys the brain and encourages the heart.
Be careful what you write on the list! You may find yourself really really enjoying third row center seats at the opera. Be still my heart.
